MIAMI — Will Smith is out promoting his latest movie, “Bad Boys for Life,” and it involves being a Lyft driver for unsuspecting ride hailers.

Passengers were in for quite a surprise when their Lyft rolled up in Miami as a 2020 Porsche Taycan, but who was behind the wheel was even more of a shock -- the actor/rapper himself was going to drive them to their destinations, ABC News reported.

They had been told that they were testing a new feature for the company, The Miami Herald reported.

One man was forced to call his girlfriend on FaceTime so she could see Smith with her own eyes after the actor found out that she watched “Bad Boys” every week.

But along with the A-list ride, the lucky few also got another surprise -- free Lyft rides for the next year.
